You should take a look at what Drizzle does as an example:
static int compressionudf_plugin_init(PluginRegistry ®istry)
If I remember correctly the void * was used because before the
solution you had devised required that every time we updated a
structure we had to update every single plugin (and the original
pointer change was done by Tomas Ulin, not myself).

write_row() in the handler is another example of exposing vs
encapsulation (which is fine... if you want to go with C over C++).

No he means what he is saying. I don't know why you would want a
statement shared across multiple THD, but having a THD be able to
handle multiple statements means that you can do asynchronous queries
within a single connection.
